Hi all! I’ve missed this space so much, and I’ve missed the cathartic practice of writing. I’ve been journal-praying, but I haven’t devoted a ton of time to self-reflection. I wanted to catch you up on all-things spring/summer. I cannot believe it’s almost June! Where did the time go?! Currently, I’m reading a lot of pregnancy/parenting books. I haven’t shared these online much because it feels like it might be boring to the people who follow me, but maybe there are some other first-time moms or soon-to-be moms out there who would be interested.Read More
I love learning about someone’s morning routine—it makes me feel like I understand that person just a little bit better. Like I know how that person ticks.
And while my morning routine is far from perfect or super rigid—and it is always evolving—I do have a routine that I’m constantly trying to improve.Read More
I’ve been thinking about this topic for a while now and have wanted to share my thoughts with you, but I really wanted to let it “steep.” I revitalized the blog this year and fell back in love with my RSS reader—keeping it old school—and honestly, it’s giving me life.
I was pretty passionate about blogging in 2011–2014(ish). I’d say those were the “golden years” of blogging for me, even though many bloggers would probably say I was late to the game.Read More
I listen, on average, to one or two audiobooks a month. I love them. Every now and then, I meet someone who’s never listened to an audiobook but has always wanted to.
But for whatever reason, it’s hard to get into the practice or habit of listening to audiobooks when you’re not used to it, especially when other forms of entertainment are out there (and I love listening to a good podcast or binging a Netflix show, too!).Read More
It seems this "blog" exists only as a way to display announcements, but one of these days I'm convinced I will return with full force! Life is just too busy these days.
But, in the meantime, I will share some of life's bigger, exciting twists and turns here. My friend Katie and I started a bookish podcast called No Thanks We're Booked, and boy, are we loving it so far. Check out the website for details on what it's all about, how we met, episodes, and all of the social media links.Read More
It's been a while! I promise I haven't completely fallen off the map; I've been making videos and reading and such, but I have to admit, I haven't had the itch to write in quite a while.
Today, however, I'm inspired by the Twittersphere because it happens to be twenty years since J. K. Rowling first publishing the Philosopher's Stone, the first book in the Harry Potter series. #HarryPotter20 has been trending all morning, and I have to say, I've been a bit weepy thinking about the world's love for this particular Wizarding World.Read More
Redemptive narratives are a lot like falling in love.
Sometimes you are here with me, and I dream you up out of my conscious mind, as if the gears are turning to put together old bones. Nothing makes sense until it does, and then we're flying, together, promising never to leave anything behind. And sometimes you return slowly, seamlessly making yourself known beyond the sleep and hum of everyday life.Read More
